HARD work has paid off for Jigsaw Homes Group; the organisation has scored top marks for governance and financial viability.
The Regulator of Social Housing (RSH) has given the group the top ratings of G1 V1 following its in-depth assessment (IDA) in April this year.
Jigsaw Homes Group was created in April 2018 with the merger of two North West organisations – New Charter Housing Group and Adactus Housing Group.
The IDA considered how Jigsaw’s board operates and how key strategic decisions are made. It also looked at how the organisation manages risk and the robustness of financial and business planning. The Regulator concluded that Jigsaw’s current working practices met the regulatory requirements in full.
“I am really proud that we have been awarded G1V1 following our In Depth Assessment,” said Fay Selvan, group chair. “It has been a lot of work over the last year bringing two organisations together into the Jigsaw Group.
“As we are now one of the largest providers of social housing and a developer of new homes, it is important to be able to give assurance to the people we work for – our tenants – that we are doing a good job.”
Hilary Roberts, group chief executive added: “I am delighted that the Regulator of Social Housing has awarded Jigsaw Homes the highest rating for governance and viability.
“This recognises the hard work of our board members and employees in the first twelve months of our new group’s existence. Our customers and partners can take confidence that Jigsaw has in place a firm foundation on which to pursue our mission of creating homes, building lives.”
